God's Wife  
I especially liked number 5!
Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once
talked about a contest he was asked to judge. 
The purpose of the contest
was to find the most caring child.

The winner was:

1. A four-year-old child, whose next door
neighbor was an elderly gentleman,
who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old
gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his mother asked him what he had said
to the neighbor, the little boy just said,
'Nothing, I just Helped him cry.'


2. Teacher Debbie Moon's first graders were
discussing a picture of a family. One little boy
in the picture had a different hair color
than the other members. One of her
students suggested that he was adopted.
A little girl said, 'I know all about
Adoption, I was adopted..'

'What does it mean to be adopted?', asked another child.

'It means', said the girl, 'that you grew
in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy!'

3. On my way home one day, I stopped to
watch a Little League baseball game that was
being played in a park near my home.
As I sat down behind the bench on the first-
base line, I asked one of the boys what the score
was? 'We're behind 14 to nothing,'
he answered with a smile.

'Really,' I said. 'I have to say you
don't look very discouraged.'

'Discouraged?', the boy asked with a
Puzzled look on his face...

'Why should we be discouraged?
We haven't been up to bat yet.'

4. Whenever I'm disappointed with my spot
in life, I stop and think about little Jamie Scott.

Jamie was trying out for a part in the
school play. His mother told me that
he'd set his heart on being in it,
though she feared he would not be chosen..

On the day the parts were awarded, I went
with her to collect him after school.
Jamie rushed up to her,
eyes shining with pride and excitement..
'Guess what, Mom,' he shouted,
and then said those words that will remain a lesson to
me....'I've been chosen to clap and cheer.'


5. An eye witness account from New York
City , on a cold day in December, 
some years ago: A little boy,
about 10-years-old, was standing before
a shoe store on the roadway, barefooted,
peering through the window, and shivering
with cold.

A lady approached the young boy and said,
'My, but you're in such deep thought staring in that window!'

'I was asking God to give me a pair of
shoes,' was the boy's reply.

The lady took him by the hand, went into the store,
and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks
for the boy. She then asked if he could give her
a basin of water and a towel.
He quickly brought them to her.

She took the little fellow to the back
part of the store and, removing her gloves,
knelt down, washed his little feet,
and dried them with the towel. 

By this time, the clerk had returned with the socks..
Placing a pair upon the boy's feet, she purchased him
a pair of shoes..

She tied up the remaining pairs of socks
and gave them to him.. She patted him on the head
and said, 'No doubt, you will be more comfortable now..'

As she turned to go, the astonished kid
caught her by the hand, and looking up into her face,
with tears in his eyes, asked her:

'Are you God's wife?'
